Quitting soda   Leave a comment

Bridget and I decided a few months ago that we would quit drinking soda this summer. I had actually quit drinking caffeine last summer, but then Glen was born…

We’ve been making efforts to reduce the amount of soda we drink for a few weeks now. My strategy has been to mostly drink Hawaiian Punch, and only drink Mountain Dew if I get a headache or if I’m feeling really tired. The problem with that is that I’m tired a lot of the time and I get headaches pretty regularly, so I may need to change my strategy.

Privacy   Leave a comment

I’ve always been a very private person.  I don’t share a lot of information with people, and the information I do share I share very selectively.  So the idea of any company selling my information to the highest bidder, or giving it freely to some third party is absolutely appalling to me.  For a long time I wasn’t sure what to do about it.  However, I’ve decided that I’m no longer going to give my business to any company who I know is giving my personal information to other entities, especially when they can’t even be bothered to tell me who those entities are.  Facebook is going to be the hardest to leave because of the number of friends I have there.  I hope that I don’t lose touch with any of my Facebook friends, but it’s a risk I believe I have to take.
